Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to the 2017-2018 Buck Lake Elementary School Year!! I am so excited to be your teacher this year. I know it's going to be a wonderful year!
I have a masters degree from Florida State University in Curriculum and Instruction, and love being able to work with 4th graders each and every day! I am incredibly excited to share my love of learning with each of you! This year I will be teaching Math and Science.
My teaching philosophy stems around hard work, respect and dedication. I give my all each day to ensure each student has all of the resources possible to be successful and expect the same hard work and dedication from my students. I believe that by the time students reach the 4th grade, they are ready and able to take on the responsibility of their education.
I was born in Miami, Florida, moved to Sarasota, Florida for middle school and high school and moved up to Tallahassee, Florida for college. I have lived in Tallahassee for going on 10 years now and consider Tallahassee my home.
I love to travel, and try my husband and I try to travel outside the United States once a year. Last summer we bought our first hosue and traveled to Japan and Thailand! This summer we headed to Ireland and the United Kingdom. I love sharing my travel experiences with my students and can't wait to share pictures and stories this school year.
We have the privilage of residing in the new building full of technology. We will be using a lot of technology on a daily basis to enhance our curriculum and go beyond the standards. I can't wait to spend the year learning and growing with you! We are going to have a FANTASTIC year.
